How We Introduced Automated Web App Testing in A Large Organization

Many organizations struggle with building a reliable set of automated tests for their React web applications. Yet a set of manual test plans is not an answer; testing without automation is slow, gives low confidence in the software, and the test results provide little actionable feedback to the developers. Should we just write unit and component tests using Jest? You must be joking - these tests are definitely not enough to ensure the app works. In this presentation, I describe how a large company has built a comprehensive automated set of end-to-end and component test suites after two previous unsuccessful attempts. I will show how to build trust between the QA engineers and front-end developers, how to convince other stake holders that investing time in testing is important, and how to balance the different types of tests: e2e, component, unit, and api to cover both the happy paths and the edge cases.
